Global Automotive Four-wheel Drive Vehicle Market 2018-2022

About this market

Regular advancements in automotive technology are steering in smarter and intelligent vehicles. Such advancements are also being achieved in automotive four-wheel drive systems, which significantly increases overall ride quality as well as safety. The main advantage of an automotive four-wheel drive system are better distribution of power and torque to individual wheels. Further, engine torque delivery to each wheel minimizes the impacts of external turbulence and results in superior straight-line stability. Thus, improved driving dynamics, stability, and handling in different terrains will drive the automotive four-wheel drive vehicle market growth.

Market Overview

Increased penetration rate of four-wheel drive system in sedans

The global automotive industry is witnessing growing demand for almost all vehicle categories, including SUVs hatchbacks, pickup trucks, and sedans. Mid-segment and premium/luxury segment sedans are in high demand in emerging economies such as China, India, and countries in South East Asia. The performance variant of sedans is also gaining popularity in these regions given the high penetration rate of turbochargers, superchargers, and four-wheel drive systems in them.

Four-wheel drive systems are expensive
